    Hi y'all or hey Yinz?

    Hi y'all, or for some Hey Yinz!
    I've been a member for a year or 2 researching & learning. I've had the original Weber kettle, obligatory Sears gasser & most recently charcoal rust bucket. I grew up all over the US, except the south. So I turned to American & French cooking, Sous Vide, reverse sear, indoor grill...
    BBQ in my family meant grilling. I never really understood BBQ until I ended up in TX. I've considered an egg, kamado, offset smoker, pellet grill, Weber Charcoal Summit...
    After it all, I decided I needed to go to the basics and master the 2 zone with a nice pricepoint. Soooo, I went old school & have a brand spanking new Graphite PK 360! Any and all counsel is wanted. 1st, do I need to season the cast aluminum?

        Welcome to The Pit. A burn in wouldn't hurt although I'm not sure if it's necessary.

              Welcome to the pit! Good choice of grill! I really like the PK. I’m gonna say no, seasoning not needed.

              Also, it's very important that you:
